WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is sending an additional Army combat force of 800 soldiers to South Korea with tanks and armored troop carriers, and pledged Tuesday to continue to modernize its military capability to face any threat posed by North Korea.
South Korea marked the Monday birthday anniversary of Kim Il-sung — the man who founded North Korea and the communist dynasty that still rules the country three generations later — by calling on Mr. Kim's grandson, the current ruler Kim Jong-un, to reform and free his people.
China is pulling its weight when it comes to enforcing U.N. sanctions imposed on North Korea after the crumbling and hermetic Communist dictatorship carried out its third nuclear test, according to South Korean officials.
U.S. and South Korean troops upped their alert status Wednesday, as officials in Seoul and Washington warned that “multiple” missile test launches could occur “any time from now."
"According to intelligence obtained by our side and the United States, the possibility of a missile launch by North Korea is very high," Mr. Yun said, according to the Yonhap news agency.
